The Big List of 2019 Christmas Craft Fairs



It started with Christmas at the Forum and now the next few weeks communities all around Nova Scotia will be buzzing with holiday craft fairs. Last year, we put out our first big list of Nova Scotia Craft Fairs. This year, we’re back with an updated list. Happy local shopping.


The Craft Nova Scotia Christmas Show
Cunard Centre Halifax | November 15, 16, 17

Find original, interesting and contemporary fine craft by Nova Scotian and Atlantic Canadian artisans. Give gifts that are as unique as their recipients. Now in its 43rd year, the show also features demonstrations from talented local artisans all weekend.


Festive Craft Market
Dalhousie Agriculture Campus, Truro | November 16 & 17

If you’re in the Truro area, you don’t want to miss this show at the Langille Athletic Centre. Pottery, glass, jewelry, wreaths, art, fabrics, food…basically everything you need for everyone on your list.


Acadia Student Union Christmas Craft Expo
Wolfville | November 15, 16, & 17

The Acadia University arena will be packed with local vendors selling all kinds of amazing items. This is a big show and definitely worth the drive to Wolfville. Check out the exhibitor list to get a taste of what’s in store for you.


Dalplex Christmas Craft Market
Dalplex, Halifax | November 22, 23, & 24

We think holiday craft fair shopping is a sport, so we had to include the annual Dalplex Market on our list. Dalplex will be bustling with people, vendors, live music, food, and more.


Christmas Craft Fair at the RECC
Truro | December 7

The Rath Eastlink Community Centre is the place to be on December 7th. It’s a family friendly event with over 100 vendors, free admission, and word has it that Santa & Mrs. Claus will be making an appearance.


Lunenburg Christmas Craft Festival 
Lunenburg | December 7 & 8

This craft festival is so big that it fills 3 venues in the town. You’ll find unique local fashion, home accessories, designs, creations, and edibles from the most exciting, high quality artisans from the Maritimes.


We couldn’t stop at six. We tried, but there were just too many good ones. Here are more 2019 Nova Scotia Christmas craft shows and holiday markets happening around us.
